What causes type 1 diabetes?

While reading a book titled The China Study, I came across the below and decided to share

The benefits of exercise bring me back to President George W Bush. He is known to enjoy staying physically fit with a regular running routine, and that is undoubtedly one of the reasons why he received a clean bill of health when he had a colonoscopy.  The widespread communities of nutrition professionals, researchers and doctors are, as a whole, either unaware of this evidence or reluctant to share it. Because of these failings, Americans are being cheated out of information that could save their lives

Type 1 Diabetes

The ability of cow’s milk protein to initiate Type 1 diabetes is well documented. The possible initiation of this disease goes like this:. A baby is not nursed long enough and is fed cow’s milk protein, perhaps in an infant formula. The milk reaches the small intestine, where it is digested down to its amino acid parts. For some infants, cow’s milk is not fully digested, and small amino acid chains or fragments of the original protein remain in the intestine. These incompletely digested protein fragments may be absorbed into the blood.  The immune system recognizes these fragments as foreign invaders and goes about destroying them.  Unfortunately, some of the fragments look exactly the same as the cells of the pancreas that are responsible for making insulin.  The immune system loses its ability to distinguish between the cow’s milk protein fragments and the pancreatic cells, and destroys them both, thereby eliminating the child’s ability to produce insulin. The infant becomes a Type 1 diabetic and remains so for the rest of his or her life. This process boils down to a truly remarkable statement: cow~ milk may cause one of the most devastating diseases that can befall a child

As you will come to see, much is governed by the Golden Rule: he who has the gold makes the rules. There are powerful, influential and enormously wealthy industries that stand to lose a vast amount of money if Americans start shifting to a plant-based diet. Their financial health depends on controlling what the public knows about nutrition and health. Like any good business enterprise, these industries do everything in their power to protect their profits and their shareholders. You might be inclined to think that industry pays scientists under the table to “cook the data,” bribes government officials or conducts illegal activities. Many people love a sensational story. But the powerful interests that maintain the status quo do not usually conduct illegal 249 250 TH E CH I NA STU DY business. As far as I know, they do not pay scientists to “cook the data.” They do not bribe elected officials or make sordid underhanded deals. The situation is much worse. The entire system-government, science, medicine, industry and media-promotes profits over health, technology over food and confusion over clarity.

Type 2 Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is caused by refine sugar build-up inside the body making the body insulin resistant. On the other hand, type 1 diabetes is caused by cow’s milk, according the the article’s author. I hope the above excerpt has given you some insight about what goes on behind close doors. Unlike type 1 diabetes,we now know based of scientific evidence  that  type 2 diabetes can be reversed and even cured. The research on this is refuted. Why manage your type 2 diabetes when you can reverse and even cure it
